Alfred Hitchcock's NORTH BY NORTHWEST is a densely layered and very well put together action flick. Laying the groundwork for the modern action movie, it skillfully followed paralleling narratives and storylines.
If I had to pick my personal favorite aspect of this movie, i'd say I enjoy the bizarre visual tricks employed by Hitchcock the most- several very unique and innovative camera angles pop up during this movie (the "looking down" angle as the main character escapes the UN building is my personal favorite). The relationship between Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint is also believable.
Filled with exciting twists, top-notch performances, and brilliant style, NORTH BY NORTHWEST is definitely a classic.
